GEO1 provides the following services to our clients. With in-house lidar acquisition and processing, we conduct geospatial analyses to fully harness the power of lidar.
A digital twin is a replica of a space or facility created with lidar. Digital twins offer an exciting opportunity to create simulations and allow for a level of interaction that can revolutionize the way we prepare for emergency scenarios, interact with the built environment, or preview and track construction projects.
Lidar has the ability to produce incredibly detailed topographic surveys, a strength that is proving to be invaluable in the world of archeology. Lidar scans can uncover ancient ruins — from a single campsite to a lost city — that would otherwise remain hidden under years of overgrowth. Beyond the initial discovery of archeological sites, lidar can be used to inform researchers of the surrounding area, providing an unprecedented level of information for planning access and research.
We combine precise lidar, high resolution aerial imagery, and geospatial data to produce a unique and powerful solution. Our imagery, acquired from a helicopter at a safe height above ground level (AGL) delivers photos with engaging detail to inspect the structure for cracks, missing cotter pins, and flashed-over insulators.
In-house classified lidar is analyzed to identify instances where vegetation is within a designated distance from conductors or electrical hardware, and where vegetation has the potential to fall or grow into the conductors. The data is then categorized into priority levels in a CSV file and visualized in a Google Earth KML.
A 3D rendering of the network is utilized to determine span clearances and sag. This process is optimized by targeting analysis towards long spans — spans that extend beyond a designated length and are typically longer than average. This is a crucial step in preventing instances of voltage sparks and ensuring network integrity in various weather conditions.
